I was looking for an afternoon sunset tour to Cepe Sunion that would combine seeing some of the Athens Riviera and some swimming. This one fit the bill. On top of everything we had a wonderful guide, Sotiris, a comfortable Mercedes van, and there were only 5 of us - allowing for safe travel and social distancing. The program was well-chosen, the swimming spot was perfect, so was the timing - we made it to the temple of Zeus in time to see it and then watch the sunset. Everyone was very pleased and said it was the highlight of their experience. Sotiris was a wonderful guide and driver - polite, friendly and attentive. Communication with the host was great - he told me where to be for pickup and explained how to get there. I recommend the tour. Take it, you'll enjoy it.
It was such a pleasure to cycle through the city with Kostas. Kostas was one of the best and kindest tour guides I’ve had so far in my life. I highly recommend this tour for your first day in Athens, especially when you only have 1-3 days. We saw a lot of the beautiful and vibrant city. Thank you to Kostas! Mees and I loved the tour and all the spots you showed us!
Perfect! The minivan was neat,our driver excellent and Ted, our guide, friendly and super professional. He explained some interesting things about locals (must see places, nightlife, where to go and what to avoid) and gave us some good information about Sounion and the Temple. He knew a lot about mythology too! Simply perfect.
The great guide Anastasia was missing, telling the mythology, she opened it finished, but it is very intense to be in the enigmatic temple the fall and the sun, something unique, the great driver
Great fun Guide very knowledgable and amusing. Well worth doing
